Read Poem: HE LOOKS HUMAN TO ME, by Elly Paul A. Tomas

the news megaphones he is sporting a new look
i wanted to react like WTF, is that even news?

he is buying wet market carcasses in candid photos

gamely

like it was not expected for him to do so
like he is not eating
like he lives on astronaut’s food pills

but Pablo Neruda would probably say
“at least, it’s no longer a difficult time for him”

and sure enough, i would agree

i would agree.
